(Hysterically) Sad But True
Thursday, January 05, 2012
With the new year and my 1 year Sparkaversary, I've been looking for a way to reenergize my commitment to health goals. One of my good friends had real success with Weight Watchers and, although I've tried it 4 other times but never made it past week 5, the balance between reasonable diet, increased movement, and tools for positive thinking agrees with my philosophy. In mid-December, my company announced a free deal with Weight Watchers starting January 3rd, so I took this as a sign and have been eagerly waiting to enroll.
I got my enrollment code from HR yesterday, filled in my name, height/weight, and truthfully answered "no" I have never been anorexic or bulemic. The site came back with an error that WW doesn't have a program for me because I'm pregnant! News to me! There wasn't even an enrollment question about it. This stumped HR to the point where they had to open up a ticket with WW and promise someone would get back to me w/i 48 hours.
Self-conscious-me would have been freaked out and wondering if my height/weight ratio is so horribly high that the program must assume I'm carrying around an entire other person. Practicle-me would have triple checked back episodes of TLC's "I Didn't Know I Was Pregnant." Tenured Spark-me just joined the Weight Watchers team, weighed herself at home, and pulled up a Spark recipe.
You gotta admit, it's pretty funny! Happy 2012 everyone!
